Healthy Recipe: Roasted Chicken & Sweet Potatoes

admin - January 6, 2015



Roasted chicken recipe from Life Line Screening.

Caramelized sweet potatoes and red onion are the bed for chicken thighs that cook up fast in a very hot oven—perfect for a quick healthy chicken dinner. Make it a complete meal with a mixed green salad with sliced apples and blue cheese.

  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain or Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme or 2 teaspoons dried
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
  • 1 1/2-2 pounds bone-in chicken thighs, skin removed
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces

    This was so delicious! I didn’t have any red onions so I used yellow but this was really good!
